  1. They do in Flying over Flanders field. Why cant they do it here ? FoFF simulate real life human pilots. Tiredness, situational awareness, the AI can get scared, moral effect, etc etc. Read again, we said its boring, not that it was difficult 🙄
  2. IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad. I have read they have corrected that, as I didn't play the game in 6 month, its a possibility that it has, indeed, been fixed Edit : I read your comment again, "in non-quick mission". So the problem is still there then ? Quick mission are still part of Il-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad , yes ? It seems we are playing the same game then.
  3. AI dogfighting in my single player battles is always circling. This has led me to put IL-2 aside for quite a long time. The only thing I play now are bombers and fighter-bombers. The AI is horrible, it doesn't stay in formation, and enemy bombers wont either, theyl separate and fly alone for the most part and go in circle. Is that what WW2 bombers did ?! I think not. Dev diary order 227 is bringing up hope but I don't have much faith in it. Maybe they should try to focus on fighter bomber or bombe campaign, planes where you dont have to dogfight. Oh what I would give to have a full fledged IL-2 Sturmovik campaign that last more than 11 missions. Where it is heavely scripted yes, but allowed for much better ground details. Anyway.. If the devs read this : I would gladly pay 300$ for a good AI. Yeah, that's right, 300$ if you can get me a DLC called " Human-like AI". I know it must be expensive to create good AI so Im willing to pay for. KEEP IN MIND : Haven't played the game in 6 months due to being away from home, so I don't know the last progress on AI development. Apparently planes are keeping in formation now ?! Due to the new programmer ? If that is so..can I buy him a beer somehow ? Let me know how to get this guy/gal a beer and I shall do so.
  4. " the more difficult is the task the more interesting is the result." well let's hope the AI does other thing than going in circle 24/7.
  5. I had completely forgot about that post. Thanks everyone for the answer, I appreciate
  6. Will we ever get a bomber focused title game ? Im thinking something a la Mighty 8th game (a very old sim game, cant remember the full name) I enjoy the scripted mission with the IL-2 the most and I would love to see either a title, but I would settle for a scripted mission, where you fly with dozens to hundreds of bombers, in formation, and survival is down to sheer luck (and a little bit of skill). I bought 1946 for this reason only and Im enjoying it but definitely... DEFINITELY, a modern, VR version would be best :) I tried to make one myself with the editor but quite frankly...Im no good. can anyone point me in the right direction if such thing exist around here ? And if the devs are reading, maybe a whole title dedicated to bomber missions or fighter-bomber (more IL-2 missions, or maybe pacific war ship attack or island bombing missions/ fighter-bomber support missions such as on Iwo Jima). Thanks for reading, Have a nice day.
  7. Hello. So I was looking at this footage of Capt. Walter L. Flagg strafing a German airfield and I noticed that some bullets would deviate a lot. It happens troughout the whole video but its very flagrant at the 40 sec mark. Why is this, and would it ever be represented in game ? Im just curious.
  8. If anyone care to do a scripted campaign. Here is a detailed flying log book, from 43-44 in a P-47. I was thinking since the P-47 is available in the game, maybe someone would want to work on that. http://www.americanairmuseum.com/sites/default/files/media/media-23856.pdf (I also posted this in Historical data as I was not sure wich thread to post it in)
  9. Hello ! Here you can find the flying log Book of Cpt. Ogden who flew during 43-44. I was thinking to put this here if anyone would care to make a scripted campaign about him. I think I made this thread in the right place but if not, please let me know and I will delete and re-post it at the right place. http://www.americanairmuseum.com/sites/default/files/media/media-23856.pdf
  10. Sea Dragons campaign IS THE BEST of all IL-2 BoS franchise. To be fair, I haven't played much of the others, but I just really hate playing as Fighter plane since the AI will simply go around in circles "ad vitam aeternam". I am throughout my first game right now, I think Im at mission 7 ? ( We just finished moving to Anapa airfield and Im at the next mission ). I am doing those as the pilot, next, I will do it as the rear gunner ! So yeah, what I love is that we are an attack airplane, hence we dont have to actually go around circles chasing other planes. Big Thanks to Blacksix for those, I wish I had the patience and skills to create such missions. I tried once and I know how hard it is. Playing as a IL-2 Sturmovik is so much fun. Flying trough Flak and trying to search for Artillery to destroy, while trying to keep my squad alive. I hope to see more from Blacksix, especially in the Bodenplatte that is coming, nothing like pursuing a retreating axis forces with IL-2s and recreating scenes that you read in "The Forgotten Soldier" ( German divisions being constantly assaulted by IL-2s with rarely any axis air forces present ) Anyway I could go on and on, but I believe the future of IL-2 Sturmovik single player experience lies in those missions where you dont have to attack a mindless AI plane. Im very excited for the future as well, maybe one day we can participate in huge B-17 formations en-route to Berlin ?! Edit : Worth taking note that I have been enjoying that campaign in full VR ( rift). And while I dont have the nice graphic card to support it ( GTX 980), its still working, Im having 30 FPS at the lowest settings, and the view is a bit blurry , but hell its still a blast !! I really feel Im in the action. Will definitly re-visit the other campaigns. Also as a side note, I wish those were co-op able. Would be awesome to have 1 to 4 players play as the same squadron.
  11. Lets go already with this update, Im leaving in 2 months and wont be able to be on a computer for 6 months after that I understand the need for a proper work but damn, I was hoping to be able to play a bit before leaving. Well.... if anything, itl be better 8 months later.
  12. I am SO VERY EXCITED for IL-2 Tank crew. Its the best news I had in decades ( well, in terms of video game ). I cannot wait to see what they do with it. Im hoping they will have single player. Im hoping the multiplayer wont just be, heres a map, and just run into each other. Hoping there will be objective, missions, just like there is for Airplanes. I am also hoping there wont be any balance, but that they stick to historical accuracy. While some people might think there will be a Russia Bias, it doesn't matter. As long as its historically accurate, let them complaint. ( Im saying this because Im suspecting people will want to play the Tiger tank, thinking its invincible and will begin to whine when they get destroy by a T-34-76. ) But anyway. I have (self) studied the Eastern Front for over 20 years and I am so excited to see them continuing on the eastern Front. Even if its just for tanks. I have lots of hope for that game. And I am 100% sure we will get a boost from all the sim players leaving war thunder to go to Tank Crew. I am hoping to see infantry but I doubt they will do that. But how awesome would it be to pass a huge frontline with infantry in their trenches, anti tank guns, artillery, etc etc. Even if its to begin the mission there and then go forward where there is less. I hope it will be as historically authentic as possible. Anyway, Im not sure if I made it clear, but Im very excited about this and I have lots of hope ! haha .
  13. Why isnt it possible to set up a battle like in Quick Mission, but online ? I get tired of having to look for enemies online, for 30 minutes, and then being shot off by some Ace, out of nowhere. Or just, generally, having to fly 15-30 minutes just to be able to see someone. I wish you could just setup a quick match, 8 players each team at maximum, you know, the same exact settings in single player quick mission, but in multiplayer. And then you could get 8 planes facing each other directly and get into an intense dogfight. I just dont understand why this option is not available. I was wondering (why my text is written in white on black ) if anyone would be interested in that at all ? If so, lets make this request heard. It would be awesome to just be able to get into a quick dogfight online. I posted that thread in the suggestion forum as well, but I want to be heard as much as possible so I posted it here too, to see if some people would be interested in that.

  15. Thanks Darbzy, Il make sure to check those out !! EDIT : Wow, I just finished watching your video's.. And I gotta say... IT LOOKS INCREDIBLE. I understand now, why I was kicked, and I want to apologize for my comment earlier to everyone who read it. I am definitely interested in this server now.
